Weekly Happenings

My sweet husband isn't one of my regular blog readers but when he does read he has told me that he likes these weekly recaps... I guess he is a visual learner as I'm 95% sure I give him a daily recap every day... 

Monday after I dropped Henry off at school I ran into the senior center and voted!
1. The senior center is nice and I hope when I'm old to go play supervised games with my friends...
2. Voting took 3 minutes. I was in and out. 
3. This was my first time to vote... I know, I'm a bad American but I'm trying to change... Every vote counts... 

 Yesterday I blogged about cleaning out my guest closet.  I'm going to guess there were 20 trash bags full of junk that I got rid of this week. Some are pictured below. The Konmari method really does work, I was even to sort out some sentimental boxes and I was ruthless!

Have you ever sold things on the facebook garage sale site? I posted lots of clothes on the site and had them listed for a low price and I received some crazy responses. I've decided to match crazy with crazy.

Do you deliver? 
- No, fishing is fun. Halabaloo.

Instead of $20 for your like new lot of clothes how about $5 and some Cheetos?
- Curtsy and thank your mama. Peanut Butter Biscuit.

What's the lowest you will take for your already low priced item? 
-ground level penthouse cucumber squash...

Does this 7/8 outfit run true to size?
Oh, too bad. It won't fit my 4-year-old...
- it doesn't fit my son or my dog either...

Instagram! Get ready, TooSweetSisters is getting ready for a sale. I'm celebrating cleaning up by listing this stuff cheap! Also, I cleaned out Lucy's closet and she told me some of her Matilda Jane is baby and she just likes to wear dresses and under armor...

 All the things that are out of my house!

Yesterday after bible study, Kristin and I went and ate bread at my favorite place to eat bread. (I'd give you the name of my favorite bread eating place but now you have to ask me about it and I can casually invite myself...)

Every month I have to come up with something about parenting, marriage, life - for the Collin County Mom Blog and I thought I would get a jump start on a future blog post. Something we have been struggling with is Homework. Basically doing it... Not that it is hard, I've seen her do it in 20 minutes. It's getting her to sit down to start and finish. So, I set up our table with a snack, homework, pens and pencils and I was going to show how we do it, you know... to encourage moms....

Well, Lucy sat down and had her snack and then did everything but her homework. mostly complained, got up to go to the bathroom 7 times and an hour and a half later she had finished 3 out of 14 problems...

It was a beating! And we still had to read and do spelling words. She's in the second grade! What am I going to do?? I'd love to hear your homework advice!

Now a Henry story-
Henry: "Mom, my friend's dog died. She is really sad."
Me: "That is so sad, did you tell her you were sorry?"
Henry: "No! I didn't kill her dog!"

That is our week. I'm praising God that it is Thursday! We have a busy weekend with games and fall festivities! The kids are super excited to have super special visitors this weekend, too!

Also, My first post is on the Collin County Moms Blog today!

Last, if you missed it, Monday I posted about Resting.

That's it.

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix it.
